In earlier sections of this blog series, we went over some of the issues with pigeon presence on various areas of your property or building, plus some of the options you have for preventing them. There are several such deterrent options available, from physical deterrents to other products available.
At A-1 Exterminators, we’re proud to assist you with any pigeon infestation as part of our commercial or residential pest control services. We’re a trusted provider of several Bird Barrier products, including their StealthNet netting products that will help keep pigeons away in a simple, physical way. Here are some basics and benefits of these netting products for keeping your property free of pigeons.
Simple, Easy Installation
For starters, installing a product like the StealthNet is both simple and easy. There are several specific fasteners made for this kind of thing, created to help fasten various net types to a variety of building materials.
There’s no building material that won’t allow you to effectively attach a pigeon net to it, whether you’re dealing with wood, metal, masonry or other materials. Best of all, installation of these products is permanent and no maintenance is generally required once they’re in.
Humane But Effective
Some folks naturally worry about the health of birds when using a deterrent method, but there’s no need for concern here whatsoever. StealthNet is a completely harmless barrier that will not risk the health or safety of pigeons or any other pest bird.
That said, these netting products are extremely effective. They will work against all pest bird species, not just pigeons, and can protect any form of structure. There are certain types of properties, such as historical sites, that may even require these nets at all times to preserve the area.
Durable and Long-Lasting
These products are made using high-quality materials, including those designed and tested to hold up during even harsh weather conditions. They’re primarily made from polyethylene, a material that’s both strong and resistant to UV rays, flames and all extreme temperature ranges.
As we noted above, there’s virtually no maintenance required for these products – once they’re installed, you simply leave them alone and allow them to do their job. They will resist rot or any other corrosion, and will not absorb water during storms.
Another big positive of these nets, both for their effectiveness and the aesthetics of your property, is how invisible they are. We can source StealthNet products for you in several colors (black, white and beige), each of which is made from ultra-thin twine that will blend in extremely well with surroundings. In many cases, visitors to properties with these netting products installed will have no idea there’s a pigeon net even present.
